# 權力來源 1.1

「權力」是一個「自我實現預言」（self-fulfilling prophecy）。大家一同覺得「有」，就立刻「有」；大家一同覺得「無」，就立刻「無」。建立權力和摧毀權力的難度在於，要「大家一同」。

# Meta-time 8

Time travel is like a story character taking over the control of the storyline from the story writer.

# The Illusion of Knowledge

I have observed that the world has suffered far less from ignorance than from pretensions to knowledge. It is not skeptics or explorers but fanatics and ideologues who menace decency and progress. No agnostic ever burned anyone at the stake or tortured a pagan, a heretic, or an unbeliever.

# Deduction Theorem

The converse of DT has powerful implications: it can be used to convert an axiom into an inference rule. For example, the axiom AND-1,

 \vdash \phi \wedge \chi \rightarrow \phi

can be transformed by means of the converse of the deduction theorem into the inference rule

\phi \wedge \chi \vdash \phi

which is conjunction elimination, one of the ten inference rules used in the first version (in this article) of the propositional calculus.

# Truth and Reality, 2

“True” or “false” are for translating a first order statement into a second order one, but without changing the meaning.

e.g.

Snow is white

= “Snow is white” is true

# Transcender love 2

Indifference 3

.

The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference.

— John T. Reed

.

I love you = I am you

I hate you = I am you but I don’t want to be

.

That is why love is a necessary condition of hate.

The best way to delete hate is to delete love.

No love, no hate.

# 活在當下 6.4

（✓）完成驗算的題目部分，我會在旁邊剔一剔（✓）。

（Q）如果某一題我暫時想不到，我就會在題號上圈一個「Q」字，示意立刻要去做下一題或者下一部分；如果完成了所有其他題目後，竟然還有時間剩餘的話，才回去再想再試。

（C）如果某一題完成了，但是發覺驗算過份花時間，我則會在題號上寫一個「C」字，代表暫時擱置，有緣再見。

# Amazing Gags 6.2

.

「搞 gag」（弄笑話）可以，連繫起「超能人」和「平民百姓」的原因是，一方面，大部分人也沒有這種才華，只有「超能人」，才有能力創作笑話；另一方面，講出來的笑話，又一定要令，佔大部分人的「平民百姓」，都能毋須思考地，立刻明白。否則，那只是一個「冷笑話」。

「搞 gag」是一項要求苛刻的活動。

「搞 gag」的另一個不好處是，見光即逝。同一個笑話，不能向同一個人，講第二次。笑話不能回味，導致沒有前途可言。

# Truth and Reality

“Real” is for objects (zeroth-order statements):

it is a real X

= it is an X

e.g.

it is not a real car

= it looks like a car, but it is not a car

“True” is for statements (first-order statements).

“Y” is true

= Y

“Y” is false

= Not Y

e.g.

“Snow is white” is true

= Snow is white

“Snow is white” is false

= Snow is not white

The relation between “Real” and “True” is:

“it looks like an X and it is X” is true

= X is real

Explanation:

“it looks like an X and it is X” is true

= it looks like an X and it is X

= X is real
